ADVENTURES IN ADVAITA VEDANTA...


Adventures in Advaita Vedanta, the philosophy and science of spirit. We are one you and I; are you curious why?..

THE ADVENTURE

HARI OM!
Here is a place to linger, to let your intellect roam. Aatmaavrajanam is being written as a progressive study and, as such, can be read like a book. Anyone arriving at any time can simply start at the very first post and work their way through at their own pace. Please take time to read the info tabs and ensure you don't miss a post, by subscribing to the blog. Interaction is welcomed. Don't be a spectator - be a participator!

Story-day is for cultural exploration, puraanas and parables and finding out about leading lights in spiritual philosophy.

Every one is searching for:
  • something to get
  • something to become
Other than
  • what we have
  • what we are.
From THIS limitation…
we want FREEDOM.
When we have something…
we want
the next thing.
When we achieve a state…
we want the next level.
  • The uneducated want education
  • The young want adulthood
  • The old want self-sufficiency
 We also want permanence:
  • permanent home
  • permanent job
  • everlasting youth
The PERMANENCE
We seek has different names…
Truth…Knowledge.
Vedanta calls this…
Unlimited…immortal…complete…
Also known as Brahman…THE INFINITE
The limited
finite…mortal…incomplete…
seekers are called JIVAS.
The incomplete jiva…
Seeks it's OWN NATURE…
Struggles to ‘BECOME’
that complete infinite Brahman.
BUT IT CAN NOT…BECAUSE
it already IS BRAHMAN.
How so?
LIKE HEATED water cannot stay hot.
It returns to its own cool nature.
LIKE in sleep…
the mind to return
to its essential nature.
We want to be rid of…
Limitations…sorrow…agitation
as they are not our essential nature.
YOGA is the discovery that…
on merging with the INFINITE…
this seeming limited jiva is…
That UNLIMITED BRAHMAN!
